Information for teachers
We aim to support teachers by offering a range of activities to highlight
the benefits of higher education. Our activities and talks also explain to
students how to apply and tell them about life at university, generally in
We are committed to engaging with students in areas where traditionally
participation in higher education has been low. This includes:
- disabled students;
- mature students;
- students who are, or have been in care;
- students with vocational qualifications;
- students from lower and disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds;
- students with no family history of higher education;
- students from under-represented ethnic groups.
We are always happy for teachers to contact us
to talk about how we can work with you.
